JOHNSON CITY (USA): US distance talent Jenna Hutchins hails from Johnson City in the northern corner of mountainous East Tennessee. She has been setting cross country courses and tracks ablaze since August, when she ran the year’s fastest 8-lapper, a 9:49.83 that’s worth 9:53.26 for 2M, putting her at No. 6 on the all-time list. Hutchins, who won’t turn 17 until March, then went on to establish a symbolic cross country best and a national track record within a 3-week span from November 21 to December 11, breaking standards held by former New York prep great Katelyn Tuohy on both occasions. Hutchins’ second effort, winning the women’s 5000 at the Five & Dime Athletics Meeting in South Carolina was arguably even better. Her 15:34.47 earned her not only the national HS Record, but also the American Youth (U18) best and American Junior (U20) outdoor standard. Writes trackandfieldnews.com.
